Barry Bonds—an alien god who destroyed space-time—is the new Miami Marlins hitting coach, which is a pretty interesting development.
Tommy Hutton, the former major leaguer who has been the Marlins TV analyst since 1997, was kicked to the curb today, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Jackson, who called Hutton “the best TV analyst in South Florida,” reports that according to Hutton, the Marlins gave him no reason for not renewing his…
Oh yeah, it’s hot fucking stove season. The most interesting and most frighteningly plausible (given the franchise involved) blockbuster deal being bandied about would involve the Marlins trading away starter Jose Fernandez, an insanely talented 23-year-old under team control for the next three years.
Joe Adel is a fine enough baseball player on his own, good enough to pitch for South Florida, but he’s no Dee Gordon. On the final day of the season Gordon went 3-for-4 to raise his average to .333, and give him the NL batting title. That’s when the congratulations started rolling in. To Gordon’s old number. Which is…
Ichiro Suzuki is an ageless wonder who quite possibly has limitless baseball powers he only chooses to dole out sparingly for the art of it. One of those powers is pitching, which he did against the Phillies today. His official line? One inning pitched, one earned run, and two hits. Here’s some evidence.
Consider this friendly exchange between Jose Fernandez and Evan Longoria a change of pace from Jonathan Papelbon’s Fightin’ Around The League tour. The Rays third baseman absolutely socked an offering from the Marlins pitcher in the first inning of Thursday’s game, and in the next inning, Fernandez joked about it.
When the Miami Marlins sent Marcell Ozuna to the minors on July 5, there was more in play than just giving the slumping third-year outfielder a chance “to get his rhythm back,” as Ozuna’s agent Scott Boras said he was told. Whether Ozuna becomes eligible for arbitration after this season or next depends on how much…
The Miami Marlins beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-7 tonight in a pretty-fun game between pretty-terrible teams. The coolest part was when Marcell Ozuna hit a two-run home run that plunked directly on top the crown of the left field foul pole.
The dogs were all over Marlins Park Sunday for the team’s Bark in the Park event. A couple of pooches were even interviewed. One dog named Lemon, who belonged to Fox Sports Florida reporter Jessica Blaylock, was not thrilled about Craig Minervini’s microphone in her face.
Some weird stuff happened at the Marlins’ stadium while the visiting Nationals were taking batting practice last night. Some weird fart stuff, to be specific:
A lawsuit filed last month in Miami-Dade County court alleges a woman suffered serious and permanent injuries after being attacked by a fake shark during a 2013 Miami Marlins game. The Marlins, like most shitty (and a few good) teams, hold a mascot race between innings in a futile attempt to distract fans from the…
Giancarlo Stanton has been crushing baseballs all season long, smacking out an MLB-leading 27 homers and driving in an MLB-leading 67 runs. So you can understand everyone’s trepidation when he announced some sort of hand injury suffered during yesterday’s game against the Dodgers. And it looks like a bad one.
Giancarlo Stanton continues smacking baseballs higher and further than us humans deserve. My only reaction to this latest bomb, Stanton’s 26th of the season, is perhaps the highest compliment one man can pay another: It moved.
There were no punches thrown in the sixth-inning scrum during last night’s 7-3 Marlins win, and both sides quickly headed back to their own dugouts. In fact, it might have been one of the politest bench-clearings of all time, as the main instigator, Cubs outfielder Junior Lake, apologized unreservedly afterward. Heck,…
Look, it doesn’t matter how good Giancarlo Stanton is at hitting home runs. No one’s allowed to eat a Kit Kat like that. That chocolate bar was made to be broken into columns, and instead, Stanton took a big bite out of it (and common decency).
Giancarlo Stanton is featured on this website a lot because we, like all right-thinking humans on earth, enjoy watching him smack the crap out of baseballs. But hey, as it turns out, he can play defense too!
Brian Matusz became the second pitcher this week to be ejected after a strategic challenge by an opposing manager after the Marlins accused the Orioles hurler of possessing a “foreign substance.”
Here’s an ad featuring Marlins first baseman Michael Morse promoting the “Fish ‘N Chips Casino Party,” where “me and my teammates” will join anyone who puts up $100 to support the Marlins Foundation for a night of dancing, gambling, and entertainment. One problem: the event was held Thursday, and none of the players…
